January Featured Topic: Startup & Idea Validation

Whether you are already in a successfully growing business, or looking to get started implementing your first Business Strategy, most of us return from the New Year break with one or many new ideas that we see as having huge potential to strengthen our business in the year ahead. This, our first meetup of 2020 will focus specifically on idea growth, validation, and businesses that help get either new entrepreneurs into their business, or new ideas into the marketplace.
Come along and bring your ideas for an engaging discussion, resources, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded business people in a relaxed and engaging environment. Click the link and set your diary to attend!


Business Strategy NZ is a community of likeminded business-builders at every stage of the entrepreneurial journey. We are purpose-led, passionate about connecting with others and see great connections as the start of a spark for growth.

The third Tuesday of each month from 6:30pm, we catch-up in an easy-going relaxed meet and greet format social meetup where community members can connect, share about their business, and discuss all topics of interest.

Regularly we have short talks from members sharing a particular area of expertise, and how they have grown a successful business around it. If you'd like to build clients and referrals or spread the word about your venture contact our organisers for more info.

There are always a lot of first-timers at our social meetups, please feel welcome and encouraged to come along and be a part of our event, no matter what stage of business you are currently at.
